5:33 am
from 1 1/2 years to four years so relatively new at the sheriff's department. as for where exactly allman was overnight, sheriff's investigators believe he was in the area but still run clear exactly where he was hiding. investigators are searching for the cause right now of a fiery train derailment. take a live look at these pictures now of the fire. this is about 100 miles west of chicago. it happened in the small community of tiskilwa. it has only about 800 people. now, witnesses reported hearing explosions at least six tanker cars burning. at one time we saw huge flames so looks like the fire is dying out. they were reportedly carrying ethanol. no word so far on any injuries. san francisco state university police are investigating a sexual assault reported on campus. an 18-year-old woman says a man led her into a dorm room last friday and assaulted her. the woman thought the suspect was taking her to a party.

5:35 am
last report, she was in critical condition. the feds are moving in to close down businesses which sell medical marijuana here in california. anne makovec is in marin county at one of the dispensaries that received a written warning from the justice department. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. people here and pot clubs all over the state are waiting to hear the announcement this morning. talking about a crackdown on pot clubs even though they are legal in california, still illegal under federal law. they have outlined it in letters they sent to 16 pot clubs all over the state saying the dispensaries are operating in violation of federal law and persons who operator facilitate the operation of such dispensaries are subject to criminal prosecution. they say federal law takes precedence over state law and applies regardless of the particular uses for which a dispensary is selling an
5:36 am
distributing marijuana. so that's right. both the clubs and landlords are facing criminal charges and possible confiscation of property if they don't shut down within 45 days. again, even though these places are legal under california state law, prop 215. >> it seems like a concerted effort to do away with medical marijuana overnight and i think it's unfair and mean and it's the wrong thing for the obama administration to be doing. >> reporter: now, that's the owner of the marin alliance for medical marijuana, where i am right now. also she is facing possible enhanced federal charges at this club of selling drugs within 1,000 feet of a park. the obama administration has been laissez-faire about pot clubs in states where it's legal until this point. but in june, the department of justice did send a memo they may be cracking down in the future and looks like this is
5:37 am
that coming to fruition. in sacramento today we are going to hear from four u.s. attorneys about their plans. >> do we have any idea why now, why they are making this big push right now? >> reporter: no, no real indication. we'll probably hear more from them today. but they are probably going to say, hey, we have the option to do this all along. now we are going ahead with it. it is very surprising though for a lot of people that thought, you know, the obama administration would be hands off on this. >> it is surprising. >> reporter: yeah. >> thank you. the jobs report is just in now from washington. the labor department says employers added 103,000 jobs in september. that is substantially more than the 59,000 that economists were expecting. the unemployment rate remains at 9.1% as expected. that is the same as in july and august. show me what democracy looks like! >> more protests against wall street. demonstrators continue their action in new york.
